OK, I tried the Sorting Hat. No surprises :-D

Thanks to my sister and Sionnaraven for bringing this quiz to my attention! It really is much the best sorting hat out there.

So here's how I came out.

64% Ravenclaw, 53% Hufflepuff, 38% Slytherin and 43% Gryffindor!

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
if you've a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind;

The cardinal traits of Ravenclaw are intellect, wit and openness to experience. They are the most introverted house of the four. Ravenclaws are more likely to prefer small gatherings of like-minded individuals and require recooperation after stressful social interaction. These individuals are intuitive creatures, the quintessential researchers. They lack the stubborn, strict, and rule-abiding qualities that would inhibit intellectual growth—one can't be too set in their ways if they are to be open to exploring new ideas and paths of thought.In contrast to Slytherin and Gryffindor, Ravenclaws in general are much more emotionally stable. Their reactions seem dampened compared to the sometimes dramatic responses of the other houses—they're much less likely to get offended, they're more open to criticism, not particularly argumentative and interested in hearing different points of view. They can at times seem to be less interested in people and more interested in their own inner world, and appear to be disconnected from the rest of humanity.
Ambition is secondary to them. Although they may strive to excel in school, knowledge and self-enrichment is the primary goal as opposed to simply wanting good marks. If they do happen to strive for excellence, it is because it fits with their other goals, not out of a desire to be superior or the best. Due to their intuitiveness and willingness to listen, Ravenclaws can be empathetic and make good advisors. They should generally leave leadership roles to people who are more extraverted and who would enjoy them more, however.

PS I'm probably the last person to find out about this quiz, so please do forgive me if it's really old news.

But if it's not, enjoy!


No - that does suit you! Not sure I'm a hufflepuff, but, as people said on my blog, I was close to being a claw! It was almost a three way split. What's surprising to me is how Gryffindor you are. ;) With me, Gryffindor was dead last whenever I took this quiz.
